Country

Although Denmark is the smallest land in the Scandinavian region, there is still a lot to see and discover. Surrounded by the North and Baltic Seas and a quiet nature, it attracts especially nature lovers. But city dwellers also feel at home in Copenhagen, which has been voted "Best in Travel 2019" by LonelyPlanet. Furthermore, world-famous attractions like Legoland Billund and the Tivoli Gardens attract millions of tourists every year. And in winter you can spend your days at the numerous charming Christmas markets.

City

The city in Jutland is well-known for its revitalised Limfjord waterfront. Here you can admire the harbour front with the futuristic music house and the internationally renowned Utzon Center, designed by the Danish master architect Jørn Utzon, from the Limfjord Bridge. Whether classic Nordic or fusion cuisine from Europe and Asia, you will find something for every taste. On the other side of the Limfjord you can experience the history and culture of the Vikings at Lindholm Høje.

University

More than 20,000 students are enrolled at the university, which was founded in 1974. Over time, the Aalborg University has developed into a dynamic, innovative and practice-oriented institution that has set itself apart from older traditional Danish universities. Teaching and research are based on problems from the real world, so the university has a close connection to many external partners and enables a wide practical orientation. As a result, the University of Aalborg was appointed UNESCO headquarters for problem-based learning in 2001.

For a healthy break from study, Aalborg Students Idrætsforening (AASI) offers students a wide range of sporting activities, including the UniFit gym right on campus. In addition, there are many parks and forests nearby to admire the beautiful nature or to satisfy the thirst for adventure in the Mountain Bike Club.

Accommodation

Although food prices are about 20% more expensive than in Germany, furnished student rooms are comparatively affordable with a price range of 375€ - 575€. These are always single rooms, with shared bathrooms and kitchens depending on the location. Detailed information about rent, arrival and conditions can be found on the website of the International Accommodation Office of Aalborg University.
